Outside the classroom
Cambodia is a country that is yet to be fully explored. The people and culture are profoundly unique to its neighbours. So with our free Khmer lessons, you can strike up new friendships and dive into Cambodia´s history and age-old civilization. Not forgetting to mention your free Khmer cookery classes (did someone say nom banh chok?).
Travelling is cheap in Cambodia, with a flight to places like Siem Reap costing only $25. But the experiences and memories you will come away with are priceless.
With US$200 monthly allowance you’ll cover your basic living essentials. Bring some extra spending money to enjoy an exciting social life. The cost of living in Cambodia is extremely low-cost; your monthly allowance plus accommodation, utilities and use of a bicycle mean you’re set to have a fantastic Khmer experience.
At the end of your internship, you may decide teaching English in Cambodia is for you and want to take on a more permanent teaching contract. Just like many of our interns have already done. If so, our Khmer team will be on hand to support you in finding a full-time teaching contract with salaries up to $1000 per month.
